Community & Resilience: Japanese American Farms in the Pacific Northwest | Speaker Series

August 19, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


𝗔𝘂𝗴𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝟭𝟵, 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟮 𝗮𝘁 𝟳 𝗽𝗺 – 𝟴 𝗽𝗺 (𝗣𝗧) 𝘃𝗶𝗮 𝗭𝗼𝗼𝗺 (𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻-𝗶𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗱) 𝗶𝗻 𝗘𝗻𝗴𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗵

Did you know that at one point, Japanese dairy farmers supplied Seattle with as much as 50% of all its dairy? How about a beloved local delicacy — a cultivated strawberry variety preserved and shared with the world through Japanese farming techniques? Farming has and continues to serve as a vital facet of the Pacific Northwest’s Japanese American community, persisting since the early 20th century despite the racially-motivated laws and policies which threatened many families’ livelihoods.

Join us on August 19th, as Dee Goto and Kay Longhi discuss their histories with Japanese American farms in Washington. Dee Goto, a descendant of Seattle dairy farmers, will be discussing the White River Dairy creamery while former president of “Friends of Mukai” Kay Longhi discusses Vashon Island’s Mukai Farm and their fruit harvests and packing innovations. Come, listen, and learn as we discuss this local history with those from our community!
